Man Charged With Soliciting 9-Year-Old Girl For Sex

CREATED May 30, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A 40-year-old man has been accused of soliciting a nine-year-old girl for sex via text messages. 

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said Adonis D. Holbrooks was arrested Friday, after he allegedly sent graphic text messages to the girl, requesting nude photographs.

Earlier in the week, police said the child’s mother discovered explicit text messages between her daughter and a man later identified as Holbrooks. He allegedly sent several text messages requesting nude photos of the girl and also sent her a nude photo of himself.

Holbrooks was taken into custody at a parking lot in South Nashville, where authorities said he expected to rendezvous with the child. Investigators said an air mattress and a sexual aid were found inside his vehicle.

He reportedly told detectives that, although the girl’s age was given in the texts, he thought she was older.

He has been charged with solicitation of a minor that police said would have resulted in child rape, solicitation of a minor for the displaying of sex acts and solicitation that would have resulted in aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Holbrooks was booked in lieu of $76,000 bond.
